With media monitoring the focus is on the right things
“We want to stay up-to-date with the news concerning our union and our operations. At the same time, we can monitor silent signals more comprehensively and estimate future topics for discussion and the challenges for quality journalism”, Rekola explains.
“Naturally we follow our own union’s visibility in media with Webnewsmonitor. However, that is only a part of our monitoring that covers many issues and topics of discussion that are important to us, such as journalism ethics, freedom of speech, media responsibility, the quality of journalism, copyright etc. In addition, we follow special topics at times, in a more project-based manner, such as the handling of “Paid News” scandal in English-speaking Indian media”, Rekola tells.
